## Which is not part of the circle?

Answer: The points within the hula hoop are not part of the circle and are called interior points. The distance between the midpoint and the circleborder is called the radius. A line segment that has the endpoints on the circle and passes through the midpoint is called the diameter.

### What are the parts of circles?

A circle can have different parts and based on the position and shape, these can be named as follows:

- Centre.
- Radius.
- Diameter.
- Circumference.
- Tangent.
- Secant.
- Chord.
- Arc.

#### What are the 7 parts of a circle?

The following figures show the different parts of a circle: tangent, chord, radius, diameter, minor arc, major arc, minor segment, major segment, minor sector, major sector.

**What is circle in precalculus?**

A circle is all points in a plane that are a fixed distance from a given point in the plane. The given point is called the center, (h,k) , and the fixed distance is called the radius, r , of the circle.

**What is the inside of a circle called?**

The distance from a point on the circle to its center is called the radius of the circle. The inside of a circle is the set of all points whose distance from the center is less than the radius. The distance from one side of a circle through the center to the other side is called the diameter of the circle.

## Is an arc part of a circle?

An arc is part of the circumference of a circle. If the arc is over half of the circumference then it is called a major arc. If it is less than half of the circumference it is called a minor arc. The diameter cuts the circle exactly in half and goes through the centre.

### When a chord divides a circle into two parts each part is called?

We know that chords divide the circle into two parts, each part is called a segment of the circle. The larger segment, that is, the segment with more area, also containing the centre of the circle is called major segment of the circle, and the smaller segment which has smaller area is called minor segment.

#### What are the parts of a circle in precalculus?

**What do you call a line that does not touch the circle?**

A line touching the circle at one single point is known as the tangent to the circle. In the last figure, the line does not touch the circle anywhere, therefore, it is known as a non- intersecting line. A line segment joining two different points on the circumference of a circle is called a chord of the circle.

**What are the parts of a circle that touch one point?**

A tangent is a straight line outside the circle that touches the circumference at one point only. A segment is the area enclosed by a chord and an arc (it looks similar to the segment of an orange…

## What are the different parts of a circle?

A chord is a segment that also has endpoints on the circle, but the line does not need to cross through the center. On the circle below BC and AC are chords. A diameter is a chord that passes through the center of the circle. A secant is a line that intersects with a circle at 2 different points.

### Which is a chord that passes through the center of a circle?

A diameter is a chord that passes through the center of the circle. A secant is a line that intersects with a circle at 2 different points. In the circle below, line E is a secant. A tangent is a line that intersects with the circle at one point.
